Jim Sterling gave it a 9.5 out of 10:

Jim Sterling wrote: Horizon: Zero Dawn is just brilliant. I speak as a critic who has played more “open sandbox” games than any one human should and has grown so very weary of them. I should have gotten sick of this thing in an hour, but I’ve been glued to it for days and days and I don’t want it to end. I love existing in this world – a world of desperate survival but of growing culture and a sense of hope. A world of giant metal animals that promise some breathtaking fights.

A world that’s basically Disney’s Brave meets The Last of Us, Enslaved: Journey to the West, Far Cry, Mass Effect, The Witcher, Monster Hunter, Toukiden, and loads of other really, really cool shit.

That’s basically Horizon in a nutshell – loads of really, really cool shit.

9.5/10
Superb

I preordered this not long ago and played it at EGX, it was beautiful to look at. We basically had a presentation of what the game's about for 20 minutes and got to play 15 minutes each with a partner. I'm really intrigued to see where the story's going.

Glad it's apparently as good as it first looked. I was definitely concerned it would be another open world a la Ubisoft once we started seeing more.

I don't think I'll rush to get it on release date, but I'll probably have it before the year's out.

Reviews seem to be positive all round; gameplay wise it's nothing new, but it's polished, the theme seems original enough, etc etc etc. Plus it's awesome on a technological level, looking and performing great both on PS4 and the PS4 Pro; it'll be a benchmark and showcase for the Pro for a while to come, I'm sure.

Surprised that people aren't more hyped about this. I'm fucking stoked just on the level of ROBOT FUCKING DINOSAURS ARE YOU SHITTING ME

very glad I preordered this - just wish I could've justified the collector's edition because I want that statue

Ordered one, along with a PS4 and a free Uncharted 4. I can pick it up Wednesday next week.

Got mine preordered and it's arriving tomorrow. Half-expected it to be here today, but then I got my email at lunch saying it's on the way from GAME. I won't be really disappointed it's not here on release day, I'll just be happy knowing it's on the way.

I'm excited for this game too, it just looks so damn awesome and aaaaagh giant animal robots is too cool. I think I love that idea. Giant robotic animals roaming a very overgrown earth. They both contrast each other yet look so harmonious. I can't wait to see the story and such.

I'm a sucker for scenery porn (not as rude as it sounds ) so I already know I'm be staring at the enviroment for hours. The graphics look so good.
I pre-ordered as well, should be waiting for me when I get home from work.

The marketing for the game over here is brilliant, though. I'm from Manchester and this is just gold.

It's Beetham Tower


They also did Birmingham and a few other UK cities.

That's pretty clever actually, I wonder if someone's documenting them for every variation
